What people are saying about Seoul

The market tour and class were so much fun. Junghee has so much energy and makes cooking the dishes so easy anyone can do it. In the beginning I was nervous about being a solo traveller but those feelings melted away so fast and I got to cook with a great group of people!

It was great, luckily we had good weather. Our guide James was amazing, kind and very caring. Activities in nature do a lot of good after spending 10 days in Seoul.

We had a very nice day with our guide Joe! Everything was well organized and we got a lot of photos for our memories!

A very relaxed and fun piece, great for a good laugh. You don't need to know Korean to watch! Go!

Exciting and enjoyable. This is a show everyone should see!
